James Elroy Flecker (1884-1915) was an English poet, novelist and playwright. As a poet he was most influenced by the Parnassian poets. He was born in London, and educated at Dean Close School, Cheltenham, and Uppingham School. He studied at Trinity College, Oxford, and Caius College, Cambridge. While at Oxford he was greatly influenced by the last flowering of the Aesthetic movement there, under John Addington Symonds. From 1910 he was in the consular service, in the Eastern Mediterranean. His most widely known poem is “To a poet a thousand years hence.” The most enduring testimony to his work is perhaps an excerpt from “The Golden Journey to Samarkand” inscribed on the clock tower of the barracks of the British Army’s 22nd Special Air Service regiment in Hereford. His other works include: The Bridge of Fire (1907), Forty-Two Poems (1911), The Golden Journey to Samarkand (1913), The Old Ships (1915), Collected Prose (1920), Hassan (1922), Don Juan (1925), and Letters of J. E. Flecker to Frank Savery (1926).
